Bio

A passion for creativity, visual communication and media literacy drives Ph.D. student Tara Jean Mesyn. Her current research project, American Hurt: Vietnam Veteran Portraits & Perspectives, involves recording the oral histories and current portraits of Vietnam Veterans while also mixing in images and artifacts from their lives prior to and during the war. She hopes to expand her research project to include more of the complicated history of the era as well as other perspectives, including photojournalists responsible for the images the American public viewed in mass media.
